Dear Dianax Study Group Members and Visitors
it is not without a bit of emotions that the directory council has deliberated yesterday during an extraordinary meeting the closing of the Dianax Study Group.
The Dianax Study Group was born on February 2012 as a mean to launch business initiatives in the field of lab on chip or related technologies. The group Charter itself states that
“The scope of DSG is to be a leading player in this revolution, preparing scientific and technical skills needed to sustain future business.
Even if the ultimate scope of DSG is to create an associated business, in this early part of its existence it wants to be as open as possible and useful, becoming a collector for new ideas and a discussion arena where scientists and technicians can confront ideas and create an open practice community.”
From the moment of the group creation a great amount of work was done allowing interdisciplinary research and knowledge and cooperation among different group members.
Now the moment has come to close the Study Group phase and to open a business initiative in the form of a start-up operating in the field of lab on chip. Even if the research, design and technology that are at the basis of this initiative has not been developed in the Study Group, the group experience was a fundamental school of interdisciplinary work and knowledge of state of the art in the medical and biological fields.
I want to thank all the persons that have given their contribution to the group and wish them a very successful carrier in this exciting field.
